Lovell gets contract to replace more system-built housing
Lovell has been selected as main contractor for a £7.4m housing association redevelopment programme in Kelvedon, Essex.
The scheme will see the demolition of 40 old concrete-framed system-built Unity homes that were built in the 1950s and replaced with 64 modern energy-efficient houses and flats. The work takes place in Church Road, Croft Road and Thorne Road in Kelvedon.
Lovell’s client is Greenfields Community Housing
The redevelopment work, to start this autumn, will create 36 houses, 27 flats and one bungalow. The first new homes are set to be handed over in spring 2017.
Lovell regional director Simon Medler said: “Our team have a strong record in the successful replacement of Unity houses with brand-new, high-quality and energy-efficient properties. We’re delighted to bring that expertise to this exciting project – our first for Greenfields Community Housing – and help create much-needed new affordable housing for local residents.”
Lovell’s experience in redeveloping Unity houses includes an ongoing £13.6m scheme for Orbit Homes in Suffolk, which will provide 164 new homes.
Lovell was chosen to deliver the Kelvedon scheme by the e² Consortium – a group of five housing associations including Greenfields Community Housing. The company was selected from approved contractors on the Homes & Communities Agency’s Delivery Partner Panel 2 framework.
